Stretch-marks, strech-marks everywhere!!

Tue Dec 15, 2015 9:19 am

So I've been lucky enough not to have any visible stretch marks up to week 30+ and I thought I was out of the woods on this one...
but not a week later they started showing up, lots of them!
It's week 33+ now, and I have stretch marks on my belly, hips, boobs, inner thighs and butt (I didn't even realized it got bigger!!!)
I'm beginning to look like a human zebra :(

Anyone else thinks this pregnancy just put an end to her swimsuit/bikini/shorts/anything slightly skin baring days?

Come on little Dan, come to mommy and make it all worth her while!!! (Not that you haven't already made me and daddy the happiest people on earth...)

LOL my mother had 3 kids and zero stretch marks. My stretch marks started in the second tri. I look like I got mauled by a tiger...but you know, it's ok, cause I will rock a bikini at some point anyway, faded stretch marks or not. No one will dictate to me how I feel about my own body. Embrace your stripes honey! You earned them :)

Aside from a brief period a couple of years ago, I've never cared much about my stretch marks - I got a lot during puberty, and then I got fat toward the end of college (LOL) and ended up with a lot more then.

But regardless, pregnancy stretch marks feel totally different to me. They're badges of honor from making a new person! And anyone who might want to judge you for displaying them can go jump in a lake and isn't worth your time.
